I just took a look at my my new "Permanent" residency card. It expires in a year. I thought the whole reason for doing this was that it is valid for 5 years.You never mentioned what you showed them for proof of solvency(?).
If its only valid for 1 year.
WHATS THE PURPOSE???
So in a year, I will still have to make a trip to SD, pay the fees, and get a new card. The only purpose of having a permanent card is to pay the DR govt more money for it, if you still have to go back every year..
Am I missing something, other than my money?????
